Paris Saint-Germain shot-stopper Keylor Navas believes that God led him towards an exit from Real Madrid in 2019.
Navas left Madrid for France in 2019 after one season as backup to Thibaut Courtois.
In an interview with France Football, The Costa Rican described his last days in Madrid as
“a complicated period
There are times when you have to make decisions,"
he said. "
I have great appreciation for Real Madrid and all the team-mates who have treated me well. And of course [head coach Zinedine] Zidane, with whom we have won everything
"We have a common history that will not leave our memory. But there are things that we do not control.
"I trusted in God, who guided me towards an exit from Real Madrid."
The 34-year-old goalkeeper won the Ligue 1 title with PSG last season and also led the Parisian club to the Champions League final, where they handed the trophy to Bayern Munich. Navas' current contract expires in 2023, but he hopes to extend it.
It's clear I'm very happy here and I'll stay as long as the club wants,
" he said.
"Of course, if they don't want me any more, I'll have to leave [laughs]
"But I'm very happy here, flourishing and I'm enjoying 100 per cent being in Paris. I want to play for a long time more at PSG, because I feel good physically and mentally."
